Dear Desertnauts

let's get ready to transition from a long weekend to a regular weekend. What better way than to follow the sun, toward its setting below the golden dunes? 

Meeting point we'll be just before the practice camel track at Lisaili. Refueling will be possible at a couple of gas stations along E66, prior to reaching the exit. Please deflate considering the heat at that time of day, and that the first patch of sand, after driving along the pylon track, will be technical and soft. We'll cross Lisaili's western side, to reach the outskirts of Solar Park, before entering Qudra's southern segment, and continuing west, toward the sinking sun. 

The convoy will line up as follows:

@varunmehndiratta as Second Lead

@Farook Veettil at #3

@Paolo Pellegrini  at #4

@Ashutosh Garg #5

@Senthil Kumar at #6

@RiaanJH #7

@Shaker at #8

@Muhammad Qasim at #9, and 

@Pacific in Sweep.

We'll be using Carnity Channel #2.

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow, ready to start the drive as close to 3:00PM as possible. Have a great evening.

Thanks @Ale Vallecchi for a wonderful drive. Calm on the radio said it all and your knack to spot wildlife in middle of huge desert is next to none... all drove very well as we ventured into some nice long range dunes, exploring some nice ridges to ride and some sweet slopes to slide through. 

Thanks again looking forward to c you all soon.
